This wiki provides an overview of existing toolkits, and (federated) testbeds in the area of [[:sdn|Software Defined Network]] (SDN), [[:nfv|Network Function Virtualization]] (NFV), and [[:mec|Mobile Edge Computing]] which can be used for building prototypes boosting the development of the 5th Generation of Mobile Networks. In particular, each section provides a brief overview about the standardization and standard de-facto activities currently ongoing, what is the main reference architecture, and which tools can be used for implementing a comprehensive solution. All of this is supported by the IEEE SDN Initiative.


ETSI NFV is a recognized telco operator initiative fostering the development of virtual network infrastructures by porting and further adapting network functions to the specific cloud environment. ETSI NFV has defined a large set of virtualization use cases spanning from the cloudification of the main core network functions, such as IMS, Evolved Packet Core and Radio Access Networks, as well as provided on demand and complete virtualized infrastructures as IaaS and PaaS to third parties such as enterprises and professional radio stations. That enables providing elastic deployments of cost-efficient network infrastructures.
